Carolyn Maloney, Retract Your Comment and Apologize to Autism Families

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has just won the Democratic primary against her challenger. Autism Investigated told readers to tell her she deserves to lose her seat after her campaign said she “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.” The statement came as her opponent Suraj Patel reportedly out-raised her in campaign dollars. What she should do now is retract that statement and apologize to the autism community.

In fairness to Maloney, however, Suraj Patel is a real piece of work. He called Carolyn Maloney an “anti-vaxxer” as an insult, claiming she “attacks doctors and scientists.” In other wacky news, he said he wants to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Nothing stops the spread of vaccine-“preventable” diseases like open borders, apparently. The voters weren’t convinced, and he lost to her in a blowout.

Now it’s up to Carolyn Maloney to make things right and restate her commitment to vaccine safety. Whatever one thinks of her specific policy proposals, she knows about the vaccine problem:

Currently, the CDC has responsibility for both vaccine safety and promotion, which is an inherent conflict of interest increasingly garnering public criticism.

As a Congressional Democrat, she is in a unique position to turn her party around on vaccination. Autism Investigated wants to like her, wants to support her and wants to celebrate her re-election. Do the right thing, apologize and re-emphasize your commitment to solving the vaccine problem, Congresswoman Maloney!

FDA Commissioner Cites Measles Importation Advocate Peter Hotez

The FDA commissioner who told Congress that Danish fugitive Poul Thorsen definitively debunked the vaccine-autism link is at it again. Scott Gottlieb is now citing the work of measles importation advocate Peter Hotez.

We are already at a dangerous tipping point, thanks to toxic vaccinations. Gottlieb cited propaganda of vaccine developer Peter Hotez, who has encouraged the importation of measles by opposing President Trump’s immigration policies. Hotez called vaccine skeptics and anti-vaccinationists a “hate group” and has written in favor of compulsory vaccination. He is in denial of his daughter’s vaccine injury.

Even Scott Gottlieb knows immigration can spread disease. Here is what Gottlieb wrote in 2008 (despite wrongly saying mercury is in the MMR vaccine):

…measles can still be imported from countries where its incidence is widespread. (The Brooklyn strain was probably introduced by immigrants.)

Gottlieb cites a man who wants to eliminate American borders to spread measles and scare people into poisoning their kids. Meanwhile, look who Gottlieb is seated next to: the former Maryland Secretary of Health who led attacks against vaccine scientists. Gottlieb said he “made transparency a priority at #FDA under his leadership.”

Read that again:

We’re fully committed to continuing to embrace and promote transparency at #FDA.

No, you’re not.

Tell Congresswoman Baloney She Deserves To Lose Her Seat

Office of Congresswoman Carolyn B. M(B)aloney

NY PostA campaign spokesman for Rep. Carolyn Maloney said the congresswoman now “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.”“Congresswoman Maloney believes in the efficacy and safety of vaccines. She was at the forefront of efforts to protect funding for vaccines in the Affordable Care Act,” the rep said.

And subsequent Post editorial:

It’s a small win for science that Maloney’s admitting the truth[AI note: as if!]. It’ll be a bigger one if she (and others who did the same) apologizes for promoting a deadly myth.

Will wonders never cease? Actually, it seems they just did. The mystery appears to have been solved by a NY Times reporter, of all people.

The last time Autism Investigated asked readers to contact her office years ago, you were all told to be polite. Don’t worry about politeness this time. Express yourself however you deem fit (no threats, of course).

Call Congresswoman Baloney’s DC office, mention the NY Post article and tell them she deserves to lose her seat in the Democrat primary: 202-225-7944

RFK Quick To Attack Trump on Vaccines, But Soft on Democrats

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. appears to have publicly given up hope on the Trump Administration’s willingness to tackle vaccines, according to The Guardian. The move comes weeks after his nephew delivered the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address, marking a resurgent role of the Kennedy family in politics. It also represents a stark contrast to the appeasing approach RFK took with President Obama and many other prominent Democrat apologists of vaccination.

When news broke that Congressman Joe Kennedy III would deliver the Democrat response to the State of the Union Address, Robert Kennedy was quick to hype the story on Twitter.

Weeks after Joe Kennedy’s statement, Robert Kennedy made these remarks to The Guardian about the current president’s alleged betrayal of vaccine safety:

“We were told President Trump wanted to meet directly with us. Not only did nothing happen, they’ve cut off all communication with people who care about this issue. The administration has decided to go in another direction.”

“I’ve seen a tremendous deflation among a community of parents and children’s health advocates across the country who believed the promises that President Trump made to the campaign, who put tremendous faith in him and now are feeling enormous betrayal and disappointment.”

According to The Guardian, Robert Kennedy has not had contact with the White House for “at least six months.” Around that same time, he disclosed details of his recent meetings with federal officials to STAT NewsAutism Investigated has reached out to Kennedy’s organization World Mercury Project to inquire about the circumstances that led to these disclosures and is waiting to hear back. One cannot help but wonder his motivations for speaking so freely to the mainstream press while trying to sway a president who has been so critical of unwarranted leaks and fake news by that same press.

Throughout the election, Kennedy was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton. That was despite her adamant defense of vaccination, even attacking Donald Trump over his statements about the vaccine problem.

Years ago, a doctor close to the Clintons convinced Kennedy to release a chopped version of his landmark book on mercury in vaccines. That failed attempt to sway Senate Democrats, the Obama Administration and an anticipated Clinton Administration faced massive protest from the autism community. Autism Investigated responded by posting the complete manuscript online, taking it down only after Kennedy published the full version one year later.

But despite spending years trying to appease Obama officials, Kennedy is quick to alienate the first president to have openly supported the fact that vaccines cause autism. Kennedy’s decision comes as the permanent position of CDC chief again remains vacant while that same president has the sole authority to fill it with a decent appointment. What Kennedy did could not have been done at a worse time.

THE KU VAX KLAN WANTS BLACK PEOPLE TO HANG

Black-lynching

In response to the measles outbreak among Somalis in Minnesota justifiably afraid of the MMR vaccine, the Boston Herald wrote an editorial concluding:

These are the facts: Vaccines don’t cause autism. Measles can kill. And lying to vulnerable people about the health and safety of their children ought to be a hanging offense.

Who do they want to hang? Why, people like Abdulkadir Khalif, who wrote the following about what happened to his son:

A few days earlier, Abdimalik got his 18 months MMR vaccine as scheduled. I still remember that day. His mother was coming back from his appointment and passed my place of work to give me a ride home. Abdimalik was sitting in his car-seat, very quite, subdued and absent minded. As I took my seat I glanced back wondering if he was asleep or not. He was seated squarely in his seat but was looking straight ahead at a point in space. I called out to him and he did not respond. I shook him and he did not move. I looked at my wife and asked what happened and she explained where they came from and that everything went well. She explained how he thanked the nurse as she put a sticker on his chest before the injection in order to build rapport. After that we rode home in silence and life was never the same again.

They also include people like Sheila Ealey, who shared the following story of her son:

After the shot he stopped walking, he started crawling, he started banging his head against the wall, the floor, anything he could. He stopped imitating with his father, he was making no eye contact, and he didn’t want you to touch him or hold him.

There is a very high autism prevalence among Somalis in Minnesota and an elevated prevalence of regressive autism in black children. This could be explained by the fact that black children are more likely to be damaged by the MMR vaccine, according to data analyzed and then trashed by the CDC per one whistleblower:

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

In a statement read to Congress by Bill Posey, the whistlebower Dr. William Thompson elaborated on the conspiracy:

All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.

The vaccine industry destroyed data showing black children are harmed by vaccines and wants black parents to hang for resisting vaccination.

The white coat is the new white hood, and the vaccine industry is the new Ku Klux Klan: the Ku Vax Klan.

Ask Congressman Chaffetz To Investigate Crooked Hillary Vaccine Lies

ap_jason_chaffetz_jef_150116_16x9_992

In a 15-minute video posted on YouTube of his speech to constituents of fellow Republican Congressman Dave Trott, Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chair Jason Chaffetz discusses the many scandals of Democrat nominee for president Crooked Hillary Clinton. Those include the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) cover-up of vaccine side-effects which she has pledged to continue if she becomes president in statements to Scientific American earlier this month:

My opponent [Donald Trump] in this race has consistently discounted scientific findings, from his comments about vaccines to his claim that climate change is a hoax. These dangerous positions not only put Americans at risk, but can have long term impacts on our country’s growth and productivity.

As president, I will work closely with the talented physicians, nurses, and scientists in our US Public Health Service to speak out and educate parents about vaccines, focusing on their extraordinary track record in saving lives and pointing out the dangers of not vaccinating our children.

Last year, Crooked Hillary sent out a tweet likening vaccine skepticism to questioning the shape of the earth and the color of the sky. Her position has obviously not changed since. Although in 2008 she and Obama claimed to want to investigate the vaccine-autism link, it was all just political speak.

Crooked Hillary Clinton served in Obama’s cabinet with now-former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who had gone on record saying her department was instructing media outlets to shun stories on vaccine dangers during the H1N1 scare. Her department later feigned ignorance of the veracity of the quote when questioned in a later news report. Crooked Hillary also arranged a meeting between Secretary Sebelius and Dr. Mark Hyman: a physician close to the Clintons who took credit for convincing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to purge his book on mercury in vaccines of the book chapters on autism and media collusion (Kennedy has since released the complete edition). There is obviously quite a bit to investigate with respect to Crooked Hillary and vaccinations.

Please watch the full video of Congressman Chaffetz below, then thank him for investigating CDC and ask him to investigate Crooked Hillary’s role in the cover-up when she was Secretary of State. He can be contacted here; if she wants a new scandal to implicate herself in, she’s got one.

Please make sure she never gets anywhere near the White House by voting for Donald Trump to Make America Great Again!

Video: BMJ Editor Humiliated After Calling Autism-Vaccine Link a Fraud

At the NIH, the editor-in-chief of the BMJ Fiona Godlee gets stumped on video after calling the vaccine-autism link an “elaborate fraud.” BMJ Group was also sponsored by Merck and GlaxoSmithKline, pharmaceutical companies that made measles-mumps-rubella vaccines – a fact Godlee claimed she didn’t know. The university that initially launched an investigation based on her allegations has since dumped Godlee’s concerns:

“the net result [from an investigation] would likely be an incomplete set of evidence and an inconclusive process costing a substantial sum of money.”

Godlee has also tried to petition UK parliament, for which she was quickly rebuffed. But years later, a whistleblower from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that it was the people who tried to dispute an association between autism and vaccinations who committed fraud. They threw evidence linking the two into a “huge garbage can.” Here is a larger excerpt of what the whistleblower said, read by Congressman Bill Posey:

“All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.”

Letting the Science Speak Against Mercury in Vaccines

Skyhorse Press

Skyhorse Press

Editor’s Note: Below is my review of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” for The Epoch Times.

By Jake Crosby

Review: ‘Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak,’ Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (Skyhorse Press)

The vaccine preservative and title subject of the book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” may not be as well-known as the book’s editor, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer and son of the late attorney general Robert F. Kennedy. Yet the public’s lack of knowledge about thimerosal is perhaps all the more reason why this book is so important, especially since the paperback edition (to be released Sept. 1) now contains 17 previously-written chapters that were excluded from the hardcover edition for being “too combustible,” according to Kennedy.

Roughly 50 percent mercury by weight, thimerosal is labeled “very toxic.” Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on earth and second overall. One would think those facts would be enough to end its use in any medicine once and for all, but if that were the case this book would never have been written. Despite the toxicity of mercury, it remains present in many routine vaccinations in the form of thimerosal, and its ongoing use remains staunchly defended by the vaccine industry.

The book’s subtitle, “The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of Mercury—a Known Neurotoxin—from Vaccines,” makes clear this book is more than just a case for why thimerosal is dangerous. Kennedy makes a compelling argument for vaccines to no longer contain thimerosal, from its toxicity, to its lack of necessity, to its association with neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, and finally to the neglectful and even fraudulent attempts to hide that association by government agencies and media outlets.

As a result of mercury’s ongoing use in vaccines, “we are gambling with population health through the same intervention that we use to protect it,” as Harvard neurologist Dr. Martha Herbert concisely stated in the book’s introduction.

Some chapters such as the one on the biological basis for thimerosal causing autism contain scientific terms that may be difficult to follow without knowledge of college-level biology. Such is the challenge of making a case for causality of a behavioral disorder at the cellular level. Yet this is a challenge the book takes on commendably.

There is a new chapter on Dr. William Thompson, the senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who blew the whistle on his colleagues for hiding evidence of vaccines causing autism. There’s also a new forward by Congressman Bill Posey who recently read an explosive statement by Thompson to Congress.

The paperback edition of “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” has some of the same weaknesses as its hardcover predecessor. It is simply counter-intuitive to write a book outlining the proof for thimerosal’s role in causing autism only to cast doubt on that proof, as is done in the book’s preface by Dr. Mark Hyman. Kennedy and the other contributors to the book also still fall for the age-old trap of trying to prove they are not “anti-vaccine,” a burden no critic of the vaccine program should face or bother satisfying.

Overall, however, the book delivers well on its promise by making the case against the use of thimerosal in commonly administered, routine vaccinations by letting the science on the subject “speak” so to speak. That is something federal health agencies, media outlets and a myriad of special interests behind thimerosal’s continued use do not allow. For that reason, readers now have a unique opportunity to let the science supporting thimerosal’s immediate removal from vaccines speak to them by giving “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” a well-deserved read.

Rep. Bill Posey Speaks on CDC Cover-Up Before Congress

Congressman Bill Posey speaks on cover-up of vaccine safety research results, destruction of documents and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concerning the 2004 study in the journal Pediatrics purporting to show no association between age of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and onset of autism in children.

Highlight from the video (Thompson quoted by Posey):

“All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.”

SB277 Opponents: Why Hold a Referendum on an Unconstitutional Law?

united-states-constitution

By Jake Crosby

If a law is unconstitutional, why hold a referendum on it? The constitution is meant to prevent the passage of laws that infringe on individual rights, even when such laws have support of 99% of the population. With 82% of Californians supporting SB277 which aims to revoke vaccine exemptions, a referendum will not strike down the law. Instead, the referendum will give rise to the perception that opponents view the law as constitutional when it is not.

Although the US Supreme Court has ruled that police powers of the state can trump individual liberties in its 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts ruling, it also put limitations on those powers. In its decision, the court stated that “general terms should be so limited in their application as not to lead to injustice, oppression or absurd consequence.”

Because SB277 seeks to mandate the routine immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for anyone seeking to attend a public or private school in California, the CDC should be legally considered to be part of the state. CDC’s conduct therefore reflects on the constitutionality of SB277, or rather its lack of constitutionality.

CDC has proven its lack of integrity on vaccine safety issues, having concealed proof of harm from mercury in vaccines. CDC’s top immunization official has lied to Congress, and the CDC has covered up evidence linking autism to the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine among other vaccine dangers according to a senior CDC scientist.

Despite CDC’s conduct and lack of integrity, SB277 fully mandates CDC’s immunization schedule and revokes all parental choice exemptions to it in California. Far from addressing the issues with CDC, Senator Richard Pan, a primary co-sponsor of SB277, sought to deny them by calling the senior CDC scientist who became a whistleblower against his own federal agency a “fraud.” So SB277 is unconstitutional, and is therefore illegal even when considering the police powers of the state as they pertain to individual rights.

Unfortunately, some lawyers have not considered the constitutionality of SB277 from every angle. Attorney Alan Phillips who specializes in vaccine exemptions stated that “courts can’t second-guess the legislature with respect to vaccine and infectious disease facts” in a letter addressed to “Concerned California Citizens.” Although Phillips was correct in saying that the right to attend school would probably not be a viable legal basis to strike down SB277, he was wrong to state that legislatures have carte blanche to invoke their police powers by revoking school vaccine exemptions. The Supreme Court’s 1905 ruling forbade exactly what SB277 will do: mandate a dangerous immunization schedule produced by a federal agency proven to lie about vaccine dangers as a punitive measure against those resisting the CDC’s vaccination policies.

A lawsuit that makes the previously described case against SB277 is how the law should be fought. Lawsuits predicated solely on parental rights, religious rights or the right to an education will likely be no more successful than a referendum for not addressing how SB277 constitutes an abuse of the state’s police powers. Such cases are perhaps the only the kinds of lawsuits SB277 opponents have approached attorneys with, hence their reluctance to take on SB277 and Attorney Phillips’ preference for a referendum.

Nonetheless, attorneys should examine SB277 with the understanding that there are limits on how a state can invoke its police powers via mandatory vaccination while also taking into consideration the behavior of federal agencies whose misconduct shows SB277 is an abuse of such powers. The case for SB277’s unconstitutionality and that of a similar law revoking the secular choice exemption in Vermont needs to be argued correctly to effectively maximize the possibility that these laws will die and never return from the dead.

As long as a referendum is in the works, however, such lawsuits may not happen. People will wrongly believe that opponents view SB277 as constitutional for organizing a popular vote on it, and an overwhelming vote in favor of SB277 is likely. Unlike judges, the majority of constituents will not have the chance to hear cases against SB277 – only support for SB277 from a media trained to lie by the CDC.

Judges, however, will have to hear cases against SB277 – if a lawsuit against SB277’s constitutionality is filed. The referendum could delay that and will end in failure. Properly argued lawsuits against SB277 and similar legislation are necessary to strike them down.
